Latest Sightings

Sightings going into the New Year have certainly started with a bang! Visitors on New Years Day were treated to an excellent showing of a barn owl from Kingfisher Hide. There were excellent views of the owl perching on a fence post and in flight.

There are still plenty of snipe resting at the edge of the Mere. They are quite close to the screens on Catty Bank giving great views of them sleeping or preening their feathers.

Janet Kear continues to have good variety in species visiting the feeders. Bramblings are still been seen in the trees around the pond, along with the occasional great spotted woodpecker and reed bunting.

Finally, Ron Barker Hide has been the good for seeing marsh harrier of late. There are currently 20 individuals at Martin Mere and they can often be seen hunting out of Ron Barker.
